    Slovakia vs. USA
    --------------------------------

    My prediction: 3-1 USA

    While I am pulling for team USA and think the Slovakia will win tomorrow. They want to have a good finish in this tourney in front of their homecrowd.

    5-2 slovakia

    they won't lose again, they simply have to much firepower and maybe a bit more motivation to win at least the bronze medal.

    I just finished watching the USA-Sweden game on ESPN2, the US looked alright, but they didn't get much in the way of scoring chances and their PP didn't do anything.

    3-1 Slovakia

    I'm going 4-3 U.S. in this one. Slovakia has all the pressure, and I think that will be the deciding factor. Chris Drury with another clutch goal.

    why do you think so? they fought hard every game and i don't think they will decline the chance to win a medal. last year was a disaster and this year they can jump in the face of those who laughed last year.

    unfortunately i can't watch the game, so i'd love to read something about it here. :)

    Have you tried the ticker at iihf.com?

    So far it is not a very interesting game. The Slovaks look tired...

    yes, but i think they have to prove that they're much better than last year, so i expect them to fight.

    bah...that's not fair. ORF1 or 2?

    i think franz wanted someone to ticker with some words about the game. the iihf ticker is boring to watch. :)

    that's interesting. i thought they'd fight and would give their last energies...well that's hockey. :)

    huh, matt cullen is the best player in that game so far...

    maybe they should schedule one more week for the tourney to give the players more rest?
